Tonight at The Bridge Hotel, Newcastle

Four of our most charming chanteuse are at The Bridge tonight. Claire Kelly, Lindsay Hannon, Ruth Lambert and Zoe Gilby will be strutting their stuff from 8:00pm. This is a return appearance by the girls - by popular demand, I'm told. The last time around opinion was divided 4 ways as to who came out best and I'm sure it will be the same tonight.
However, this isn't a jazz X Factor thing (thank goodness) but an opportunity to hear four class acts putting their own stamp on some not so well known songs (I doubt if you'll get Over The Rainbow!)
It's unlikely you'll ever hear such singing again in The Bridge unless Adrian books Diana Krall or Ella, Billie, Peggy and Anita are reincarnated!
Don't miss it - the best fiver you'll ever spend.
Lance.

About this blog - contact details.

Bebop Spoken Here -- Here, being the north-east of England -- centred in the blues heartland of Newcastle and reaching down to the Tees Delta and looking upwards to the Land of the Kilt.
Not a very original title, I know; not even an accurate one as my taste, whilst centred around the music of Bird and Diz, extends in many directions and I listen to everything from King Oliver to Chick Corea and beyond. Not forgetting the Great American Songbook the contents of which has provided the inspiration for much great jazz and quality popular singing for round about a century.
The idea of this blog is for you to share your thoughts and pass on your comments on discs, gigs, jazz - music in general. If you've been to a gig/concert or heard a CD that knocked you sideways please share your views with us. Tell us about your favourites, your memories, your dislikes.
